To provide the best possible care for your child, you must do some hard work. You must pick the right team, carefully choosing the doctors who take care of your child. Once you have chosen them, you must follow their advice. If you do not understand or do not like the advice, ask questions. Get answers. If you are not satisfied, get a second opinion. Then ask more questions.
Even after you have found a doctor with whom you are comfortable, you have not transferred the responsibility for your child's outcome to the doctor. You must make sure your child takes the medicine, does the exercises, keeps the appointments, gets the blood tests, and gets the treatments needed. It's not easy to find the time, to pay for it, or to take on the responsibility. But if you want the best outcome, it's not optional.
